Exhibition about fresh water

Fresh water – a world of life

Join Maritiman on a breathtaking journey of discovery, both below and above the water surface with the help of interactive stations and nature photographer Johan Hammar’s fantastic photos and films.

Via glaciers, rivers, streams, creeks, wetlands, and lakes, you are welcome to join a breathtaking journey of discovery, both above and below the water surface. The temporary exhibition Fresh water – a world of life is based on photographed and filmed material of species and environments – both below and above the water surface – from northern to southern Sweden. The threat to our aquatic environments, but also the important work that takes place in restoring and recreating valuable water habitats, is also illustrated in the exhibition.. 

Through the freshwater specialist, photographer and filmmaker Johan Hammar’s magical photos and films as well as several interactive stations, the exhibition aims to create a fascination for the fantastic aquatic environments that exist in our own country. It also intends to create a desire to want to learn more by going out and discovering Sweden’s nature and perhaps even wanting to work with aquatic environments in the future. We hope that the exhibition can contribute to knowledge and understanding of how vital untouched, living and healthy water is – both for us humans and for all animals. 

Fresh water – a world of life is produced by the Regionmuseet Skåne and will be shown at Maritiman (in the Stora Tullhuset building) during the 2021 season. The exhibition is included in the regular entrance fee but please don’t forget to pre-book arrival time and buy your ticket in our web shop before your visit.
